Instant Reaction: Chuck vs the First Fight
Addendum: This is actually true. All of my music critic buddies are all like "Quit spamming me with network TV live-tweets" and I'm all like "n00b" and then do it anyway. Actually it isn't quite so badass as that, but let me have my moment.
Tweet 2: Fun fact #2: I dressed up as #Chuck for Halloween this year. #Chuck407
Addendum: This is also true. Although I look like a chipmunk storing acorns fort the winter because my cheeks are so chubby, I did don my Nerd Herd attire and go as Chuck Bartowski for Halloween this year. It was a good Halloween.
Hit the break for more witty irreverence!
Reply Tweet 1, from N_Reinoehl: another #fun fact, yvonne use that exact statement "fun fact" when commenting on ILY2!
Addendum: I had no idea that this was a true statement. You learn something new with which to stalk Yvonne Strahovski every day. Don't actually stalk Yvonne, men (and some ladies?). It will only bring to light our only barely concealed group obsession with her. Can we designate someone to be our official Yvonne spokesperson? They need to be able to speak with her in a calm manner, and not drool over her. I KNOW IT IS HARD BUT I THINK SOMEONE CAN DO IT.
Tweet 3: @N_Reinoehl Fun fact: She stole that from me. #NotTrueAtAll
Addendum: I take credit for things because my ego is so large that to think I may have stolen a good idea for someone would literally make my head explode. Please don't point out the similarities between Twist and Fates or Twist and Double Agent or Twist and College Years or...
Reply Tweet 2, from N_Reinoehl: that is awesome, hey maybe ill be included in your transcript on castle insanity..now that is awesome :)
Addendum: WE ARE TAKING OVER THE WORLD ONE TWEETER AT A TIME.
Tweet 4: @N_Reinoehl You'll basically be a celebrity.
Addendum: Make this young woman feel like a celebrity, people! Some applause or something!
Tweet 5: #SararhConnorBitches #Chuck407
Addendum: Do I even really need to add anything?
Tweet 6: You never heard from her again because she had to save her son from the machines. #Chuck407
Addendum: That takes TIME people!
Tweet 7: Oh God. #MoreTerribleMorganAdvice #Chuck407
Addendum: At what point does Chuck actually glue Morgan's mouth shut? I think it's gotta be in, like, two or three more episodes, right?
Tweet 8: Stiletto stabbing is the best stabbing. #Chuck407
Addendum: Yes there is a scale. No I will not give it to you. That violates the stabbers code. Just know that Stiletto stabbing is #1 on that list. (It is a TERRIBLE LIST.)
Tweet 9: Is it weird that I was just jealous of Morgan? #YvonneStrahovskiDrool #Chuck407
Addendum: See this is what I'm talking about I could clearly not be the Chuck Fan Yvonne Spokesperson.
Tweet 10: Huhwhaaaaa? #Spittake #Chuck407
Addendum: That would only have been better if Chuck had a sip of water and then spit it out when she said "Oh well that is basically the truth now its time for you to die."
Tweet 11: No. Yes. Wait no. #OhChuck #Chuck407
Addendum: Wait okay maybe.
Tweet 12: Oh God Ellie is breaking. #Chuck407
Addendum: I honestly did not see this as a returning plot point because I am a dumb person.
Tweet 13: Why a wild horse specifically? #Chuck407
Addendum: I mean it seems as though a tame horse would work to a similar effect but what do I know.
Tweet 14: God damn that outfit is sick, Zachary Levi. #Chuck407
Addendum: Seriously I want that outfit. Give it to me.
Tweet 15: James Bond bitches! #Chuck407
Addendum: This will also become a recurring hashtag. Watch for it at your local supermarket.
Tweet 16: James Bond isn't field trained? #Hahaha #Chuck407
Addendum: Don't laugh at me. I didn't see this coming because I AM A DUMB PERSON.
Reply Tweet 3, from ladycat713: But he's so sweet! I think I prefer him this way.
Addendum: Okay someone else didn't get it either I'm not completely stupid. Phew.
Tweet 17: @ladycat713 Sweet James Bond? #DoesNotCompute #Ahhhhh #Chuck407
Addendum: I should have listened to my computer.
Tweet 18: My girlfriend: "This is such a dumb show, Chris." #IShouldBreakUpWithHerRight? #Chuck407
Addendum: OFF! OFF WITH HER HEAD! No wait no she's way to good for me let's rethink this.
Reply Tweet 4, from ladycat713: She blasphemes!
Addendum: She means well, though. Nobody is perfect.
Tweet 19: This is so mean. #Chuck407
Addendum: Making fun of ladies for being unattractive is mean, guys. Stop that.
Tweet 20: Latchkey James Bond. #Chuck407
Addendum: He probably did come from a broken home, though, right? I mean to turn into an angry super bad guy, you probably didn't have a whole lot of rabbit stew waiting for you when you got back from school.
Tweet 21: Um. Flash? #Chuck407
Addendum: Seriously Chuck what are you doing I really think you should-
Tweet 22: There we go. #Chuck407
Addendum: Hey all is right with the world!
Tweet 23: Why is accidental murder funny on this show? #vsTheFirstKill #Chuck407
Addendum: OR MAYBE IT WASNT AN ACCIDENT AT ALL> Think about that too much and it'll break your mind.
Reply Tweet 5, from ladycat713: It just is.
Addendum: Best answer.
Tweet 24: @ladycat713 I just can't help but laugh. #Chuck407
Addendum: Seriously it was like that dude in vs. the First Kill tripped on marbles it was so slapstick. They had a Jackass bit where the same thing happened, guys.
Tweet 25: Morgan/Mama B reunion is surprisingly emotional. #Chuck407
Addendum: I did not expect that but it seriously was. Maybe Linda Hamilton just adds auto-gravitas to everything?
Tweet 26: Pop culture junkie James Bond. #Chuck407
Addendum: He's not that into Undercovers, but he'll be damned if Lost wasn't his favorite show.
Tweet 27: Waking up in weird places is the best back-from-commercial transition in #Chuck history. #Chuck407
Addendum: Did anyone else notice this? It was kind of neat.
Tweet 28: Ewwwww incest. #Chuck407
Addendum: That was gross, James Bond. THAT WAS GROSS.
Tweet 29: So I seriously kinda wanna cry right now. #Chuck407
Addendum: IM A REAL MAN OKAY! A MANLY MAN MAN WITH CHEST HAIR>
Reply Tweet 6, from N_Reinoehl: Me too!!!
Reply Tweet 7, from lightening__bug: You're not the only one
Reply Tweet 8, from ladycat713: ditto. I wanna know what was said though.
Tweet 30: I actually prefer that it wasn't.
Addendum: I do like it that they glossed over it, if only because it's not really NECESSARY to the progression of the plot, and it wouldn't have really ADDED any emotion to the scene (would have just slowed it down and killed the momentum, really). It was a good choice.
Reply Tweet 9, from ladycat713: I'm a curious cat, myself.
Addendum: I get that.
Tweet 31: The adorable quirks of Stephen J. Bartowski. #Chuck407
Addendum: Seriously it was good to hear Scott Bakula's voice again, even if it was just to read a cheesy letter.
Tweet 32: Loving the cuts to Sarah here. #Chuck407
Addendum: That was probably my favorite part of the scene, because it said so much without saying anything at all. Show don't tell! People forget about that but it can lend some beautiful inference that would only be ruined by words. Really well done.
Tweet 33: One of Chuck's best scenes, all-time. #Chuck407
Addendum: No question.
Tweet 34: Duh, Chuck. #Obvs #Chuck407
Addendum: Seriously you thought it was just a coincidental bank robbery, dude? WHAT IS THAT COMPUTER IN YOUR BRAIN DOING TO YOUR ACTUAL BRAIN MAN?!
Tweet 35: Casey that is a bad idea. #Chuck407
Addendum: Giving Morgan a gun is never good news.
Tweet 36: 6 for 7. #SarahWalkerManBeatings #Chuck407
Addendum: I am hoping she goes 23 for 24. That would be MVP material right there.
Tweet 37: Die-for-his-friend James Bond. #Chuck407
Addendum: And I was all like "Wait doesn't he have a multi-episode arc I don't get it." I AM SO DUMB YOU GUYS.
Tweet 38: Badass traitor James Bond. #Chuck407
Addendum: Finally it all clicked.
Reply Tweet 10, from ladycat713: ACCCKKKK!
Addendum: For both of us!
Tweet 39: Did she... Did she just erase the Intersect and lead Volkoff to Chuck? #BESTTWIST #Chuck407
Addendum: Anything that leaves my heroes in an unwinnable situation makes me cheer, so long as it isn't completely contrived. So, duh, I liked this. Freelz.
Tweet 40: Making the James Bond classic villain mistake James Bond. #Chuck407
Addendum: That would be the "not actually watching the other guy die" mistake. Was it an intentional callback or is Volkov actually a dumb Bond villain? TIME WILL TELL.
Tweet 41: Two weeks?! #Lamezorz #Chuck407
Addendum: No seriously that is lame. What do they have next week that's so important?
Final Thoughts: Two absolutely monstrous episodes in a row. I can get behind that. I think it's something about having to write for Linda Hamilton that must be getting the writers all fired up or something because seriously since she's showed up it's been nothing but good times. Like Sepinwall said, I am hoping for at least 27 more ambiguous "Is she a good guy or not?" moments before the end of the season.
